Shout-out of the Week: The Mantras

This week, I'd like to shout-out The Mantras, whose newest album, Jambands Ruined My Life, was just released for free on The album was recorded almost a year ago, but was only released on Tuesday.

Jambands Ruined My Life
The band has been going through some struggles the past two years, and this album hails as a triumph — giving respect to the past, while looking ahead into the future. And the future looks bright for these guys, as they transform from a regional hit into an international sensation (I mean, they already have their own festival.).

The album features Jake Cinninger of Umphrey's McGee as a guest producer and guitarist. The Mantras will be sharing the stage with Umphrey's tomorrow night at The National. If you can't make it to show, take the download — it's free — or hit them up on one of their many other tour dates.

Update: The show tomorrow night at The National is now sold out. Sorry, guys.
